Security with RFID

Always know what’s going on in your store with RFID Technology.

What is RFID?

RFID stands for Radio-Frequency Identification.

It’s a system that uses electromagnetic fields to automatically identify and track tags attached to objects.

It’s not just for wallets. It is a very beneficial tool you can employ to run your store more efficiently and keep it secure.

It sounds like magic, but it’s real and it’s accessible. 

The Benefits of RFID

  • Loss Prevention

  • Theft Reduction

  • Data Tracking

  • Product Identification

Secure your store

RFID tags are a great way to secure valuable inventory. Using radio waves allows the technology to be unobtrusive and inconspicuous; this creates a better shopping environment for the customer and secures your store at the same time.

How does it work?

An RFID security system requires 3 basic components:

  1. Tags
  2. A reader
  3. An alert system

1. Tags

RFID tags emit radio waves that can be detected by scanners. These tags hold information such as if the product has been bought or not, as well as identification data. 

They can come in many forms:

  • Paper hang tags
  • Plastic bullet tags
  • Labels

These tags can be discrete or obvious, depending on your preference. They can be applied on almost any kind of product; from bottles of wine to articles of clothing. You can choose what kind of tag works best for your products.

2. Reader

An RFID reader or antenna reads the RFID tags on your items. Generally, a reader is placed near the exits of your store and scans a determined range. When a tag comes into its coverage, it will detect if the item has been paid for or not. It will activate an alert system when it detects an unpaid item.

There are also handheld scanners available for in store use. These can be used to count and find tagged items in your store.

3. Alert System

Simpleware can adjust the scanner to the alert system of your choice. This can be a flashing light by the exit, a siren in the manager’s office, or whatever works best for you.
